Hello Harrison Chen,
Bilirubin is a yellow-brown pigment found in bile, blood and also feces. If the levels are increased or in excess, it can indicate a health problem where the increase in bilirubin can be caused by:
Disorders of the liver, whether infection, liver damage, obstruction, or inflammation Disorders of the bile duct or gallbladder Certain inherited diseases Red blood cells are damaged more quickly, one of them is sickle cell anemia or hemolytic anemia Excess alcohol consumption due to the use of certain drugs that can increase levels bilirubin For this reason, if you get high levels of bilirubin, it is necessary to do an examination by a doctor or internist to assess and find out the source of the problem and provide appropriate treatment. Try to get enough rest because if it can't affect the body's metabolism and aggravate the work of the liver, avoid consuming alcohol, and pay attention to other symptoms that arise to help the doctor determine the cause. Later, in addition to a physical examination, other examinations will also be carried out such as a blood lab, ultrasound or a CT scan or MRI scan if needed.
